THE entire family of late Alhaji Sheikh Sharafdeen Olorunisola Ibraheem Aroworatira on Friday, February 4, 2022, celebrated the one year remembrance of the late cleric's departure to the great beyond.

The late Sheikh Sharafdeen Aroworatira was the Chief Imam of the Idimu Central Mosque in the Egbe-Idimu LCDA.

He was a product of Wheaton High School and University of Baltimore, both in Maryland, USA. A dedicated scholar, he was regarded as a Sheikh of Arabic Language by his peers and mentees.

Before answering the sacred call of being the Chief Imam of Idimu Central Mosque, the late Sheikh started his work career as a civil servant in the Federal Ministry of Labour where he was a dedicated and loyal employee.

His humanitarian, adventurous, and brilliant spirit made him join the team that built one of the biggest hydroelectric dam in the country, the Shiroro Dam in Niger State in the Northern part of Nigeria.

A seasoned politician before the religious clarion call, Late Sheikh Sharafdeen Aroworatira was a founding member of the National Party of Nigeria (NPN).

Ambassador Kaokab, the son of the late Sheikh and a 2023 aspirant for the Alimosho Federal House of Representatives seat, in his tribute to his late father in the commemoration of the one year of his demise wrote; "Everyone dies, but not everyone lives. Thanks for showing us how to live. I will be missing you more than any words can express. I love you!"

The late Sheikh has been sorely missed by family, friends, religious groups alike.
